Pieced together a kit to get rid of the hideous stock intake plumbing. Haven't decided whether to extend the piping down inside the bumper or not. Gonna see what the intake temps look like with the aluminum in there instead of plastic.

4" 45* aluminum bend, 4" 90* elbow, 4" coupler to stock MAF. I used a 1" piece of 3.5" silicone hose around the MAF end and the 4" coupler fit perfectly..

If you or anyone wants to make a homemade 4" FWI that goes under where the stock washer tank goes, buy a 180 degree aluminum mandrel bent pipe from amazon for $48. Cut it in half and make two 90 degree pieces. Drill a 4 1/4" hole under where the washer tank was, and buy two couplers and an airfilter and you have a home made 4" FWI. I made a thread on how to convert the radiator overflow tank to washerfluid in the how to section. Then go buy a $12.99 overflow tank from Advance auto parts, and it sits above where the 4" pipe turns down. G/L guys.

This type of intake would benefit from a slot style maf instead of choking it down to 3.5" with the stock maf.

+1 to what LT1Z says!! That is exactly what I am going to do when I do my turbo in the spring. Then I will be selling the 4" FWI I have now, and my old Volant!!

i know i'm resurrecting an old thread, but for the filter what did you use and did you need any other piping for it? the stock filted hole is tiny, and i know chevy colorado filters will fit, but due to the angle the maf goes into the box i'm curious if they would still just fit right in.

anyone that knows please chime in! thanks

whats an AFE filter? I owned a colorado and modded the crap out of it and i'm not catching that acronym.....or is that a brand? I ordered a direct replacement colorado air filter already. looks like it will fit when i opened the TBSS intake cover up, but the angle is all i'm questioning on where the maf goes in. I'll work around it at this point since its already been ordered but just curious.

If your going with a 4" FWI and ls7 maf your tune will have to be adjusted.

I was going to keep the stock MAF and just change the tubing and such to what is in the pic above. So any changes needed to the tune?
